BETTER DISCIPLINE has been at the heart of Dewsbury Rams’ recent improvement, according to boss Neil Kelly.
Rams have climbed to third from bottom in the Kingstone Press Championship going into tomorrow’s crucial home game against Rochdale Hornets (3pm).
After losing their opening eight games, Rams are now one point above the drop zone and Kelly said: “We are definitely improving and one of the significant things in our recent improvement has been our discipline.
“That has improved no end and the penalty counts and discussions I’ve had with the RFL’s referees’ department back that up.”
Hornets are two places clear of Rams and Kelly added: “They are a point above us and we’re getting to the stage where everyone is jockeying for position to go into the play-offs, so it is a big game. We have won four of our last six – and the two we didn’t were at Hull KR and London where a team in our position is highly unlikely to go and win – so we’ve taken a lot of confidence from that. But we realise this is a new game, everything starts again and we are going to have to play well to win.”
